It’s Handbuilding Day in the Stoke on Trent pottery studio, and the little group must make a 45cm-high clock. “My design is based on the whole idea of urban collapse,” says one contestant. Mmm, is that really what anybody would want from a clock?
There’s some head-shaking from judges Kate Malone and Keith Bymer Jones, who, of course, forces a little teary sob (a weekly requirement from the Weeping One) when he becomes overwhelmed by someone’s use of colour.
And there’s plenty of sniggering at this week’s spot test, which is “pulling handles”. That really, truly is even more suggestive than it sounds. “Is this being shown after the watershed?” someone wonders.
The ceramicists return to Stoke-on-Trent for week two of the ceramics challenge, with judges Keith Brymer Jones and Kate Malone setting them three more tasks to show who is best at working with clay. They begin by throwing a double-walled pot on the wheel, then for the spot test they have to create handles for a set of casserole dishes. Finally, the main challenge sees them making a large clock, which involves slab rolling large amounts of clay to shape, then raw glazing and firing them to produce what they hope will be beautiful timepieces. But for one hopeful, this will have been their last day in the contest. Host Sara Cox breaks the bad news.
